5      CHAIR'S STATEMENT

 

It has been my great honour to have been the Chair of Governors at Victoria Park Junior School for the past four years and it is a role which fills me with immense pride.

 

The school is very well managed and continues to strive to provide an excellent education for the children whilst managing within tight budgets restraints.

 

The Governors and the Staff continue to work closely together through two Governor's afternoons a year, working closely with Teachers on their Development plans for different subjects and also enjoying and helping out at the many special events and performances put on by the school.

 

We have a very active Governing body and we are regularly in school and participating in school life as well as the life of the local community.

 

If you are interested to find out more about what being a Governor involves, then please get in touch with myself or one of the other Governors.

 

The school is focused on providing an outstanding education for the children.  During the next year, we are focusing on  supporting the Teachers, Parents and children of this fantastic school whilst always having our core values of Love and Respect at the heart of everything we do. It's hard to keep improving but that is what we strive to do!
